“Great rooms and staff”
Reviewed 20 March 2008

We have stayed at this hotel several times and always found it to be comfortable with great beds and an above average hot breakfast buffet. The staff has always been attentive and pleasant. The location is adjacent to the huge Columbus Polaris shopping complex. Several upscale restaurants are within a mile of the hotel.

We requested a non-smoking room and honestly the smell of the room and the entire floor was simply nauseating. Unfortunately we had to stay for two nights since we were booked into this hotel for business travel. The first night we went to a nearby Target to get air fresheners that are supposed to reduce the smell of smoke. Between the air fresheners and us utilizing the air conditioner/fan in the room, we were finally able to reduce the smell in the room to less than the odor in the hallway.

After leaving this facility and traveling to Kentucky I looked forward to sleeping in a truly non-smoking room that smelled fresh. Much to my chagrin, my PJs still smelled of smoke from the stinky linens at the Comfort Inn.

I love Columbus and the Polaris area -- but if I can not locate another room in the area I will drive several miles rather than stay in this facility again!

  • Liked — Polaris location close to food and shopping
  • Disliked — Non-smoking rooms/floor were definitely smokey!!

We are sorry that you had a bad experience in our hotel due to a smoky smell. We appreciate your feed back and will try and improve communications with our housekeepers and management. It appears someone prior to your stay decided to break the rules and smoked in a non-smoking room. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, so we can try and prevent reoccurance.

I definately recommend the Comfort Inn. I had a room with a King bed. The room was very clean and had a recliner. I used their WIFI which worked perfect. The continental breakfast was great. It had bagels, muffins, waffles, cereal, toast. and sausage.
My one complaint was that they didn't have plain bagels, only flavored.

I did use the pool and excercise room. The excercise was adaquite and the indoor pool was great but small.

The staff were friendly. This is an excellent hotel for families being next to Magic Mountain (which has Minature Golf and Go Karts) and is across the street from Polaris Mall. The hotel is easy to get to from highway.

  • Liked — Very clean and comfortable room
  • Disliked — The pop machine on my floor wasn't working
